    First night event got rained out so this is technically the "first" night time racing event at Inde Motorsports Ranch in Wilcox, AZ.

    5-10pm Saturday, August 23rd

    Smaller 8 car groups since there are no lights on the track

    $200 per car

    I don't see any details or a way to pay. Is there a motorsport link somewhere I am missing?

    Facebook link is the official one. Give Hunter a call to get on the list. As far as I know this is a go

    Is there a magic trick to sparing windshields there...like a film coating? We always loose windshields there and this year I was the victim.

    I hadn't heard that before, from rocks being tossed up? With only 8 cars per group, there should be some huge gaps between vehicles

    I only race Inde once a year with SCCA. I thought maybe you locals had some tips because the rocks there are brutal. There is a lot of 2 wheel off and the occasional 4 wheel off bringing rocks onto the track from sticky race tires. Inde is a cool track with nice facilities and the old warbirds. You guys ever notice the barb wire fence on the back straight is head level to anyone in a spec racer or open wheel car? You don't even notice it in a street sized car. I'm thinking decapitation.

    I asked around and no one in our events has cracked a w/s yet. I've been to probably 6 private track events and they put radios in a couple cars in each group and they get people out with brooms immediately when someone dusts the track.

    There are several options for w/s protection:

    Invisible Windshield Protection Films and Screen Protectors - ClearPlex
    Exterior Windshield Protection » EcoTint
    Amazon.com: Windshield Chips and Cracks a thing of the past? Bulletproof Windshield Protectant: Automotive

    Ya I have noticed the barb wire fence on the straightaway. The sharp turn just before the straight has a 195 yard long concrete/tire barrier. Hasnt been an issue yet but I wonder if they are trying to move that back. I believe that's their property line.

    I think they added another plane, an F-111 Aardvark, as well as another garage.

    Sounds like there are at least 12 guys signed up, so this is a go!
